The mother of a suspected Indian Mujahideen (IM) terrorist claimed before a Delhi court that her son was a minor at the time of the serial blasts in Delhi in Sep 2008.

“I am mother of Salman. My son was born on February 9, 1992,” Ishrat Jahan, 38, told Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Kaveri Baweja.

Jahan, who appeared in the court on a notice, answered queries posed by the judge inquiring into the claim that Salman was a juvenile at the time of the incident and thus should be treated under milder provisions of the law.
